TTR Sotheby's International Realty to List Historic Fillmore School

January 15, 2015

George Washington University (GWU) reported Wednesday that TTR Sotheby’s International Realty will serve as the exclusive listing agent for the former Corcoran College’s Fillmore building, which the university plans to sell this upcoming year. GWU took control of the property as part of the historic agreements with the National Gallery of Art and the Corcoran last summer.
 
TTR Sotheby’s International Realty was selected through a competitive bidding process to market the property, located at 1801 35th St. NW.  The Fillmore building includes the historic schoolhouse and more than one acre of land in Georgetown. It was built in 1893 and sold to the Corcoran College as design space in 1998. The building will be listed at $14 million, and reviews of purchase offers are expected to start in April. 
 
“We are honored to have been selected to represent the seller in this landmark opportunity. We look forward to leveraging the significant reach and resources of Sotheby’s International Realty worldwide to ensure a successful outcome for our client,” said Mark Lowham, managing partner of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty.

Jacob Lawrence Exhibit at The Phillips Collection

January 5, 2015

From January 9 through August 10, 2015, The Phillips Collection is hosting an exhibition of the paintings of Jacob Lawrence. Among the best-known  20th century African-American , Lawrence gained national recognition with his 60-panel Migration Series, painted on cardboard. 

Produced between 1954 and 1956, Jacob Lawrence’s Struggle series illustrates scenes from American history, chronicling events from the Revolutionary War through the great westward expansion of 1817. This exhibition, which brings together 12 panels from the private collection of Harvey and Harvey-Ann Ross, presents a rare glimpse into the artist’s narrative invention at mid-century while considering the significance of his Struggle series.

The Phillips Collection is located at 1600 21st Street NW.
